Ingredients

  • Flour-based baking spray
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups shredded coconut sweetened
  • 11 ounces sweetened condensed coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray an 8x8" baking dish with baking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs and coconut, breaking up any clumps of coconut.
  • Add the sweetened condensed coconut milk and melted butter; stir to combine. Press the entire mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 12 minutes then set aside to cool for 1 hour.
  • When the coconut layer is completely cool, use the microwave or a double boiler to melt the chocolate chips. Pour the melted chocolate over the cooled coconut layer, using a spatula to spread the chocolate to cover completely.
  • Transfer the bars to the refrigerator and leave them there for 1 hour, or until set. Cut into squares and serve chilled.
